The Milligan College men’s and women’s basketball teams were both voted into top spots in this year’s AAC preseason poll.
The preseason rankings were decided by coaches who voted on the teams. Each first place vote earned a team 10 points. A second place vote earned 9 points and so on.
The women’s basketball team this year has been voted to receive the number one ranking in the conference tied with Tennessee Wesleyan College at 113 points. Union College came in second with a total of 96 points, followed by Reinhardt at 82 points. Virginia Intermont would take fifth place at 77 points.
Last year the Lady Buffaloes won the AAC regular-season championship with a 16-2 record. However, the Lady Buffaloes fell in their second game of the AAC Tournament 61-52. The 2014 women’s tournament will take place Feb. 26-March 1 at the MeadowView Marriot in Kingsport, Tenn.
On the men’s side, this year’s preseason poll has ranked the men’s basketball team second in the conference with 78 points, second to Tennessee Wesleyan at 97 points. Ranked third is Reinhardt at 70 points followed by Bryan and Union at 62 points and 60 points respectively.
Last year the Buffaloes fell in their second game of the AAC tournament, 85-83, against Tennessee Wesleyan. The Buffaloes will look to bounce back strong this season with key returning players and some promising new additions.
The Buffaloes will host their first home game November, 12, in which both teams will take on the Bulldogs of Union College. The Lady Buffaloes are set to play at 5:30 p.m. with the men following at 7:30 p.m.Courtesy: Milligan
